Lewis & Clark and the Indian Country:  Two Hundred Years of American History was organized by  the Newberry Library, Chicago, in partnership with the American Library Association.  The traveling exhibition is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: great ideas brought to life.  Other major funding has come from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  The Sara Lee Foundation is the lead corporate sponsor; Ruth C. Ruggles and the National Park Service provided additional support. 

The exhibits programs at WSU Libraries are funded in part by the Kansas Humanities Council, a nonprofit cultural organization promoting understanding of the history, traditions, and ideas that shape our lives and build community. Additional funding has been provided by a grant from the Kansas Humanities Council and the Wichita State University Libraries. Additional support is provided by the University Libraries, Wichita Public Library, and WSU's Department of Anthropology/
